Flatten is glitching on more planets

Recommended Posts

In 0.9 I found the tool glitching a little on Barren when I neared to pole.

In 1.10.2, it was glitchy on Tundra.

(On course, Radiated is the bad one.  In 0.9.2, it killed me once and tried a second time.)

Delete 'little'.

It appears that flatten starts doing strips that have gaps between them.  My programming experience says it might be a math/calculation problem.

And it is showing up on Barren as well as Radiated.

And it did kill me once on Radiated in 0.10.x.

I'd imagine the center of gravity is calculated via hemispheres, or quadrants, and is averaged out. Issues are encountered where sectors intersect. Maybe a longitude and latitude system would work best. Coordinates might also help any implementation of a GPS/mapping system. They would also allow atmospheric pressure to be calculated at any point... maybe lay the foundation for how fluids work, and/or Atmospheric Condenser efficiency.

Again, no clue how the engine actually works. This suggestion might be way off what is actual.
